meeting of senators john mccain and president obama. this was held at belmont university in tennessee. the questions came from undecided voters from the nashville area. tom brokaw was allowed to include questions submitted on- line. this is almost two hours. >> good evening from belmont university in nashville, tennessee. i'm tom brokaw of nbc news. and welcome to this second presidential debate, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's debate is the only one with a townhall format. the gallup organization chose 80 uncommitted voters from the nashville area to be here with us tonight. and earlier today, each of them gave me a copy of their question for the candidates. from all of these questions -- and from tens of thousands submitted online -- i have selected a long list of excellent questions on domestic and foreign policy. neither the commission nor the candidates have seen the questions. and although we won't be able to get to all of them tonight, we should have a wide-ranging discussion one month before the election. each candidate will have two minutes to r
of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and we had to make some changes, and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. it has been pretty important to billings. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward. i hope to get to that plant somewhere in here, or i will address it later on. >> thank you very much. now tom to your question for representative rehberg. >> yes representative rehberg. you have criticized american recovery and reinvestment act, our also cut the ribbon on a road project that used stimulus. in february 2009, you credited yourself for securing $42.5 million for montana project and that year consolidated appropriation bill
, when you look back at 2008, the debate between senator mccain and then senator obama, senator obama was cutting and slashing in his presentation there, he said some very strong, if not offensive things, to senator mccain. but he also said it with his back to senator mccain. and that was interesting tactic. a direct on offensive, talking to the people asking him the question and saying the god awful things he believed to be true about senator mccain's policies. >> because of that debate, there were critics that said that senator mccain never glanced at senator obama. >> and referred to him as that one, and there was mainstream pressure on that one. we're use today oprah and phil donahue and on the fox news channel and it's the sine quanon, and so policy is important. >> in the future, it's important. but do i have the ability to be friends with the person that's asking the question even though i don't agree with them. >> and you're going to be at the debate. what are you looking for. >> i'm going to be look for the ability to connect with the audience and senator now president obama
ago that then young senator obama was facing the same questions governor romney is now about whether he had a fitness to be commander in chief. he was facing the questions not just from republicans in 2008 but from democrats and his own v.p. nominee biden who said before the 2008 election, at some point, he will be tested as a young commander in chief. they believe inside the white house he has passed that test. >>shepard: the attack on the consequence last left the president on the defensive. >> in doubt there is a vulnerability for the president on foreign policy because of what happened in benghazi. that is why mitt romney sees an opening. and our latest polling this month, it shows on the question of who do you trust more to handle foreign policy, the president is leading 52 percent to 41 percent. it was higher for him in september, at 54 percent trusting him more in september. a little bit of a shift in october. the bottom line, again, they feel confident in chicago and the campaign headquarters there, they believe the president has the edge over mitt romney although it has dipp
say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context, at the end of world war ii

: that was then senator barack obama take on rising gas prices at a campaign stop vowing to raise prices on gas and oil companies calling for a new direction in america's oil prices as prices in california soared to an all-time lie over the weekend. what happened? >> reporter: the president is here in california driving by some of these gas station, he has seen prices like this behind me. the 76 station, $4.99 for regular gasoline. regular unled is $5.39. there is a number of reasons for this. one, high demand, two, california has more strict standard for gasoline. you can't import it from outside the state. the refineries that make it gas, several of them have gone down because of a major fire in august. prices are high and consumers are not happy. >> i have never seen gas prices anywhere near this. >> it's shock. i have a lot of driving to done i have to fill up my car. >> i just spent $70 and this will only last me a week. >> it's ridiculous. >> reporter: governor brown changed the standard to the winter standard that could bring the prices down some. but even if they come down some they are signifi
there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when
to seek negotiations. he resisted stronger sanctions. in fact, when senator mendez and senator kirk suggested tougher sanctions, obama opposed them. it was only after congress forced him to that he went forward and he's allowed the u.n. security council, russia and china to determine our policy. all these are acts of weaknesses as opposed to making clear and we haven't worked closely with our allies as evidence by the recent u.n. meeting when the president had time for whoopi goldberg but couldn't meet with netanyahu. >> one of the criticisms, this appears to be management of the arab spring. that is a big part. does governor romney think it was a mistake to push mubarak out? >> what he has said is that we have forces that are of extre extremism and forces of moderation an we should be aligned and help those forces. a difference in egypt is one that's on the table today. governor romney says we should have conditions. we shouldn't write off a billion dollar debt. >> but going back to mubarak. was that a mistake? does governor romney believe that's a mistake? >> how it was handled wa
the dream the act. president obama, nancy pelosi, and harry reid have the perfect trifecta. they had the senate and the white house, two years to pass comprehensive immigration reform, and they did nothing. they did not have a single bipartisan meeting at the white house. i do not support president obama did what he likes to do, an executive order on the dream act. >> thank you. >> you are not running against nancy pelosi. this is precisely the language of gridlock that is evident as to why we have a do nothing congress. one of the things we have to do is to realize that the congresswoman has failed to lead. she talks a big game, but she has failed to deliver. her language, when she attacks and attacks is very partisan. >> the next question. >> in your last debate, you refused to disclose your personal fought on california's prop. 8, which bans same-sex marriage. now that it is being looked at by the federal court, it has become a federal constitutional issue that has national implications on the legality of same-sex marriages. don't you think residents deserve to know where you stan
senator portman watching in a hotel suite tonight. president obama was in the air on air force one for part of this tonight. how does this change prep for tuesday? >> well, i think we'll see certainly a more aggressive president obama. i think the interesting thing about it, we all kind of agree that this was probably a draw, which just draws attention to the fact of how rare it was last week when you had such a lopsided victory that everyone saw almost immediately and the president himself had to finally acknowledge. and then the question is if you have a draw, then who really wins ultimately? and you could say the republicans do because they're the ones who came in with momentum. but vice president biden was out there to stir up the base, to fire up the base. and if that was his objective tonight, he probably accomplished that. >> and tom brokaw, one of the elephants in the room, of course, is the business of moderating. a lot of talk about the job jim lehrer did. i think it will be mutually agreed that martha raddatz did a good job tonight and moved that conversation along. >> s
that when obama got into office, he got no leadership experience. he never voted in the senate. he rode the fence on both wars. he never cast a vote for or against on either were. he started his campaign as soon as he hit a house. he never did do anything. he had zero experience on being in the political field. he has not shown any leadership since. he leaves very strong towards withalistic society ways, the national health care. i believe he wants to take away our gun rights and hand them over to the u.n. for them to control, and to have them be in control of our constitutional laws. his moral fiber as a parent and a husband and a father of two children -- his moral fiber, he compromises to the gay community for votes. no husband or father would ever been his moral code to say it is ok for gays to be married to one another. if you tear down the moral fiber of this country, you tear down god's protection as well. why do you think we have droughts and hurricanes and tornadoes growing in a larger scale? host: we have a couple more calls. president obama, just a few minutes ago, in ohio. m
the president's signature. the senate's consent and the house. the republican house has nothing to do with it. i believe that obama's second term and lame duck strategy will be able to create global gloverance and impose through treaty the gun controls and tax increases that he cannot get through a republican house. >> steve: check it out. here come the black helicopters bound to be a new york times best seller. thank you very much. congratulations . >> brian: three minutes before the top of the hour. want to buy a gun or ammo? get ready to shell out a violence tax? is that legal. >> steve: they are famous for smashing guitars, but did you know the who nearly called themselves -- i am not going to tell you, i am going to let pete townsend tell you here on "fox and friends". ♪ ♪ ♪ >> steve: the shot of the moment. media. of all of the photos they took of mitt romney they show this one. he was preparing to pose with the students in fairfield elementary . turns out that little girl was making that face because she was surprised he was sitting down directly in front of her. the new york times
they would execute them. what romney's position seemed to be is obama's talked a big game but hasn't really executed on it so you've got the middle -- >> but he has, hasn't he? whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. i had this argument earlier with a senator. i said to him he literally has executed it. he executed gadhafi, bin laden. he hasn't stopped executing people. and whether you think the middle -- >> do you think that we're safer now? >> yes. >> it's true that osama bin laden was killed -- >> do i think america is safer without osama bin laden or gadhafi or any of these despots, absolutely i do. >> but we're seeing that we've just had a situation where an ambassador was killed and we were told for about a week that it was because of a movie on youtube? that doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence. i think that's what a lot of this is about. it's about okay, we're going to be strong. we are going to put action behind our words instead of just saying i hope that we'll be nice and maybe they'll like us. >> okay. let's turn to maria again. apparently we have got to be strong. what does that mean? >> l
-out. no way that mitt romney it win heavily unionized michigan, especially when president obama says i helped save general motors. >> michigan has been democratic in presidential elections, but 2010, i came into office, we won the house and the senate. we won the state-wide offices, and it was all focused on more and better jobs and a future for our kids and that's what governor romney is all about. washington is a mess we need solutions. stuart: we've got that, but you think that governor romney is going directly at growth and jobs issue in a way that michigan people are listening to, really? >> i think in the last debate he did a good job, he was aggressive and got on the message, 'cause again it's not worth fighting about the past. the more he can talk about the positive programs he's looking at and need for getting the budget taken care of and paying down debt and tax reform, the messages that worked in michigan. we're the come back state in the country and done reforms in the last year and a half and working we're 50 out of 50 and proven what can be done, it needs to happen in washington
, not president obama, and in the last debate, scott brown would not commit to voting to mitch mcconnell for senate majority leader if re-elected, but i think she'll try to tie him to the national republican party. another thing that happened in the last debate was scott brown was saying as a model supreme court justice, that scalia was the conservative justice, a model for him, and warren's campaign hit hard on that trying to bring up talk of, you know, important job of a senator is to confirm supreme court justice nominees, and scott brown said this conservative is an ideal justice for him. >> host: you touched on this a little bit, but why are people paying attention to the race? >> guest: it's one of the closest races in the country. scott brown is just one of two vulnerable republican incumbent senators up for re-election this year. the other is dean heller in nevada. it's been tight in polls over the last year, and then scott brown has been ahead in some over the last month or several weeks at least. warren has, you know, gotten a little of an advantage in polls, and we've s
the energy that president obama was missing last week. republicans i'm talking to here in this spin room contend he was unhinged. i just heard senator ron johnson of wisconsin describe him as incredibly rude. but there is no question that in that exchange that you just played and others, congressman ryan may have started out making good points, but he often didn't get to the end of them because vice president biden interrupted him. >> pelley: jan crawford is covering the romney campaign for us. and she's there in kentucky as well. jan. >> reporter: well, scott, one thing that i think is so interesting about this debate tonight was that paul ryan was considered this man of substance. he was the numbers guy, the policy whiz, someone who could take out these powerpoint presentations and deliver them for an hour before voters in some small town in wisconsin and instead this was very much a debate that is going to be discussed on issues of style and that clip you showed really demonstrates that. those are substantive issues. they were trying to discuss. and look at biden interrupting paul rya
